LAMDA Short Courses

Every summer at LAMDA, we run a series of short courses between two and eight weeks long.

Taught by the same tutors and industry professionals who lead our full-time training, alongside recent LAMDA graduates and other visiting artists, these courses are an intensive learning experience designed to bring out the best in our summer students.

Open to anyone aged 16, 17 or 18 and over (depending on the course), our summer short courses take place at our new £28.2 million centre for world-leading drama training in West London.

Interested in developing a greater understanding of the Bard? As well as our four-week Shakespeare short course, we also offer an eight-week LAMDA Shakespeare Summer School.
